Enforcement Directorate has issued its fifth summon to Hemant Soren in money laundering connected with land scam in Ranchi.
How Soren will respond to this summon remains to be seen.However,ED has asked Soren to appear before its officials at Ranchi office on October 4.
Earlier, instead of abiding by any one of four summons, Soren had preferred not to appear before the ED. Instead Soren, after the SC declined to hear his petition challenging legality of the ED summons, has moved the Jharkhand High Court.
Notably, each of these summons issued by the ED were addressed to Hemant Soren as a citizen and not as the CM of the state to question him in money laundering connected with the land scam in which a number of accused including Chhavi Ranjan, IAS, and ex Deputy Commissioner, Ranchi, were who in jail.
